A little bit of progress...
Finally, I signed up for drawing classes and I am starting in two weeks, so I hope that my drawings will be better. ;-)
Thanks for looking!

I really like the softness and dream-like feel of this piece, I can feel the innocent candid soul of its character. Great idea!
Try not to lose her features with the coloring, she looked very ethereal and stylish with the uncolored white skin at the beginning.
I know the skin color addition is more realistic, but it also makes it less personal.
You may also keep in mind the limits of the tools you're working with, those colored pencils are useful but not the best for detailed works!
Hope this helps, can't wait to see more :)

I agree with Sleepless-Puppet, I think that in coloring the body, you've lost something of the dreamy crispness from before. I do think that some of that can be recovered with some judicious shading. I quite like the pose and lavender flowers though

Thank you so much for your tips and comments. I am not good in shading, but I made her skin a little bit lighter. :-)

Great! it gives such a better atmosphere and lets those soft shades of pink and violet breathe, it's very harmonious.
She looks extremely alike a friend of mine :)
